|Giovanni Bellini (1430-1516)
Giovanni Bellini was a Venetian painter.
His focus was on religious subjects.
His most important contribution to art lay in his experimentation with the use of color and atmosphere in oil painting.
Through the use of clear, slow-drying oil paints, Giovanni created deep, rich colors and detailed shadings.
His sumptuous coloring and fluent, atmospheric landscapes had a great effect on Venetian painting school.
When he died, he was chief painter to the state of Venice.
